SendGrid will be GDPR compliant by May, 25, 2018 [DT: this is the date the EU GDPR comes into effect].

However, neither current EU law nor the GDPR require this. Instead, what is required is that SendGrid must provide "appropriate safeguards" for data that it hosts and processes on its US servers (see Art 46 of the GDPR here). SendGrid offers a Data Processing Addendum (DPA) to provide such adequate safeguards, which includes provisions for when GDPR goes into effect.
